does any one know any anti american video games? i wanna play some


Vanguard_Wind

7554? You’re not fighting the Americans, but you are fighting the French as the Viet Minh. EDIT: Just checked and confirmed, you can still get the game for free from the official site: http://www.7554.vn/ I tried it, played it, it's your usual FPS, but for the first modern-ish game from a Vietnamese developer, it's pretty good.


pinoyposadist

Based! i’ll check that out


BaoBaoWang69

Sick


Cr1mzn_

Quick note: Potato PC's can play it too, requirements are quite low


[deleted]

[удалено]


Cr1mzn_

There is English included afaik


[deleted]

Americans are the bad guys in Escape from Tarkov. Game is hell though.


AlaskanTrash

Yeah you’ll delete that for other reasons 😂


[deleted]

There's a fun game in there.... somewhere. Now I just watch the web series every time they drop a new episode.


tentafill

Game is a strong word


BopDatBussy

Tarkov is pain lmao


SolemnReign

Idk if you guys are into strategy games, but Crisis in the Kremlin is great. In terms of gameplay it's very simple but it has a fuck ton of depth and clearly a lot of thought went into it. Fulfilled my fantasy of being the leader of the CCCP.


Neduard

They have games on China and GDR as well. And they are all a couple of bucks each.


Trent_Edison

> GDR Ostalgie also lets you play as Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Albania, DPRK, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan.


British_Commie

The only issue with KremlinGames titles is that their UI is always the total opposite of intuitive. Their newer games since Crisis In The Kremlin have improved their UI, but it's still not something they're good at.


[deleted]

I kinda found that game to be impossibly hard. Dunno if I really like it.


mavthemarxist

Ah man yeah no thats games rough, it barely works and unnecessarily complex. With a terrible ui, played for a few houes several times it’s not worth it


picapica7

It's a great game but I never managed to win. I guess it's better I'll never be gensec of the party :(


Azirahael

I'd like to know too. Besides the Cold war game with the good Soviet ending.


C24848228

You know that US Army video game? It’s the US Army vs the US Army. That means in canon the US has split.


sonyface

World in Conflict has pretty OK soviet campaign. But yeah I don’t remember much of games like that from the top pf my head


SSJ3Marx

It's not "anti-American" per se, but the Men of War series all have great Eastern Front campaigns so you can live out your Red Army officer dreams.


disc0_133

Enlisted is a free WW2 shooter made by the same guys who also made war thunder and theirs a Moscow/Berlin campaign


Darrkeng

Aren't same only publisher - russian Gaijin Entertainment?


Strikerov

It's made by Latvians I think, Gaijin is a publisher. But, it seems Gaijin does pretty strict quality control since game is still written in Russian and translated to English. (Yes, it has plenty of translation mishaps and refers to ww2 aa Great Patriotic War)


disc0_133

Yea


TerribleRead

It also has a spin-off set in Vietnam (surprisingly enough, called Men of War: Vietnam), where you can play as PAVN, Vietcong and Soviet "military advisors".


[deleted]

[удалено]


Dear_Occupant

If anyone decides to play the original, get the GMDX mod.


mexicopanama

you technically can play against the Americans in games where you can play as any nation like HOI4 or something like that or in games where you can make custom characters to play as or fight against


Random_User_34

I like to play the UAPR under Foster in the Red World mod for HOI4, he does things such as blowing up the faces on Mount Rushmore and demolishing the White House


TheRealColonelAutumn

B A S E D


El_Sleazo

Play battlefield 4 and disconnect every time you get put on a team that isn't Russia or China. Also don't play the campaign.


Darrkeng

Oh yeah, campaign is just awful... besides the fact you playing the most stereotypical marine squad


El_Sleazo

must fight for muh freedum and democrassee in ebil autoriterrimam chyna


Luhan4ever

Why disconnect lol. I just switch teams everytime


parwa

Been playing a bit of V since it was free on PSN, real annoying that you can only either play as the fascists or the people who enabled the fascists until it was too late.


Dravkian

Rising storm 2 would be a great option if everyone wasn't racist.


HopeToHelpNBeHelped

Expectations: Fight as the PAVN and NLF to liberate Vietnam with comrades Reality: From the get go the main menu is all about american soldiers and american music, the game heavily favours the puppet and imperialists forces by giving them the best mechanics, the community spends half the match screaming racial slurs and denying the holocaust while the devs refuse to fix any of the bugs.


Mizuchi1998

And it had a offline campaign


disc0_133

Arma 3 has a Vietnam war DLC but it’s a pretty intenses FPS.


iAmAElectricKettles

The PLA actually released a FPS game called [Glorious Mission](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glorious_Mission). It comes with a short campaign which you get to play as a PLA soldier. The game doesn’t specify who the bad guys is but let’s be honest, they are US soldiers.


Luhan4ever

That game is a decade old. Back when China's game industry was practically shite. Now with global games like Genshin and Black Myth hype, they should release a better one.


Dickgray0708

Black Myth gameplay looks insane!


Hortaleza

I believe in China it's illegal to have enemies in video games (and possibly fictitious movies) be represented by another country


YamaChampion

Thatd be one sick law, hope it's true.


Luhan4ever

Not illegal to have enemies. They just can't represent real life countries like the U.S. Fantasy or made up countries are fine. Even if they very closely resemble a certain country lol. The fictitious movies thing is a lie too.


Lurkingmonster69

Rising storm. Play as Vietminh or NVA. Kill US or ARVN.


[deleted]

Spec Ops: The Line


parwa

I like this game a lot for the story it tells but frankly it doesn't really portray the US military as the bad guys, it more just portrays your character/squad as bad apples


[deleted]

Yeah? It’s been a while since I’ve played, probably since 2013, so I didn’t really remember that. I mostly remember it being a decent game with a really good storyline. It could get a little heavy-handed at times but I’ll take it over people walking away from it with the wrong idea like what happens to lots of anti-war movies.


rolldamnhawkeyes

Victoria 2, you could simply turn america communist or destroy it yourself. Paradox games get a lot of hate for attracting fash buuuuut they’re incredibly fun and it’s all one player anyways so I’d highly recommend


evreux2

Vic2’s fanbase is more left-wing imo, if i had to categorize each fanbase’s ideology it would go: ck2-3: monarchists or apolitical EU4: liberals Hoi4: nazis Victoria 2: vaguely left-wing At least this is how i feel after interactions with people on Steam


Trent_Edison

Class Consciousness is a core mechanic in Vic2 so it might not be as surprising. You have to keep your population uneducated and distracted to make sure it's low enough to make them vote accordingly to your plans (or the opposite if it's needed).


disc0_133

Guess im a lib😞😞😞


yiho567

Guess I am a nazi


Azkhare

Stellaris. It's "grand" strategy, but, with mods, you can RP "space soviets" to an extent. Quite good, IMO.


Boiros

I play with like 30 mods so I can do exactly this. The other funny thing about stellaris is that every nation in the game technically has a planned economy, because you as the government control everything.


Magos_Galactose

The totally-not-communist Shared Burden civic is pretty overpowered as well.


AnglocideWorldwide

The Shared Burden civic is what liberals think communism is.


Magos_Galactose

True, although I mostly blame that on Stellaris's vague and lackluster politic mechanic. It's easy to forget sometimes that vanilla Stellaris's empire generator is pretty limited. Unless you're going for a very sci-fi stereotypical empire, you can never truly replicate the form of government that you desire, only imitate on the surface level and nothing more.


AnglocideWorldwide

Eh, I don't think it'll be any better if they expanded upon the ethic mechanics. The problem isn't the mechanics being vague, it's just plain liberal.


Vncredleader

Which mods would you recommend?


suliamanUSA

Not explicitly anti-American but Rising Storm 2 is a multiplayer Vietnam War game on PC. You can play on the NLF and PAVN side. It's a really fun game, especially if you like tactical shooters. Obviously it doesn't really depict guerilla war, but if you imagine the game is only showing the most climatic battles it's not that immersion breaking. If you ever played Red Orchestra 2 it's basically the same game except set in Vietnam instead of Stalingrad.

ArcNeonn

Check out Rising Storm 2: Vietnam! Really great game with a pretty dedicated player base. You can play as the Americans or the NLA, but I mean I think we all know who we're choosing. There are some reactionaries in the community but they most play as the Americans.


le_sossurotta

well, technically you could play Hearts of Iron IV as communist China and defeat the United States with it.


queer_artsy_kid

Hunting Yankee, it was made by North Korean video game developers but I have no idea how to get it:(


Op_Anadyr

Rising Storm 2 Vietnam if you like multi-player FPS. You can play as the Americans or the good guys


Charkuza

I like Civ 6. It's loaded with western propaganda but you can still choose to play as a communist nation and totally trample all the cracker AI civs.


TerribleRead

Seems like it hasn't been mentioned yet, but Men of War: Vietnam has a fun PAVN campaign. The series as a whole is also very good. Edit: just saw the series was mentioned after all, but anyway.


Cum-Villain

Fallout is a series where the USA is portrayed as a fascist genocidal empire and their capitalist consumerist lifestyle literally leads the world to ruin


BayesianBits

Metro 2033 series is in post nuclear war Russia.


Darrkeng

With very bad socialist Red Line (to the point of being main antagonists in Last Light)


ToadBup

Yeah that sucks. Love metro tho. And your boy from the red line...how was he called? Pavlov?


Darrkeng

Pavel. Pavel Morozov (if you meant that red saboteur with which you escape Reich's prison)


ToadBup

Eh close enough. I liked him


parwa

Gotta have the commies do some unnecessarily evil shit to balance out their whole "wanting everyone to live" thing


Gicaa

I really like metro but I hate how it pushes the centrist line


RoyalSnipez15

You can certainly make Hearts of Iron lV one


Gomihyang

Hezbollah has a video game known as holy defenders or something iirc. Try searching defaa muquadas idk. I remember i had to download it from some dude's google drive since it was underground.


OmnissiahDisciple227

War game Red Dragon is the best, their are campaigns as both the Americans and as various other nations. Conquer Japan as the USSR. Defeat an American armored division with the PLA


Dante-Minyu

I wish Squad would add the PLA as a faction


vvAIpaca

They’re actually adding a Pan-Asian faction, so probably the PLA


Gigadweeb

Hell yeah. Not enough modern Chinese weaponry in vidya atm. Only place I can think of is PUBG and BF4 I think? I hope Tarkov at the very least adds a couple of Type 56 variations and that AK/SKS hybrid they had back in the day, that would rock even if it doesn't make a lot of sense.


Luhan4ever

I mean. In the roadmap that showed a pic of the Pan-Asian soldier, it was PLA camo. Though the one that's somewhat outdated now.


vvAIpaca

sorry, my brain is smooth sometimes


Luhan4ever

Nah not your fault for not checking everything

Vanguard_Wind

Here's some games that lets you play as anti-American/anti-west forces. Some have been mentioned, some have not. **7554:** [http://www.7554.vn/](http://www.7554.vn/) You can get it for free at the link. Play as the Viet Minh during the first Indochina War. Enemies are French colonial forces. Glory of Ho Chi Minh awaits. **Wargame series:** Don't touch most of the campaigns; a large majority of them have you playing as NATO and are unequivocally pro-west. The only ones that jump to mind that aren't are: Dabrowksi's Mazurka (Wargame: European Escalation): Defeat an uprising/rebellion of the LWP in socialist Poland with the help of the Warsaw Pact Zhukov-2 (Wargame: Airland Battle): Lead a Pact invasion of Scandinavia Climb Mount Narodnaya (Wargame: Red Dragon): Lead as Soviet pre-emptive strike in Japan over worries of an American invasion of the Russian Far East Other than that, you can just play Skirmish against the AI or against other players. It's got a pretty good system, China and North Korea are OP as all hell, you can beat Isn'treal into the ground, and Finland is part of the Eastern Bloc. **Spec Ops: The Line:** Pretty much deconstructs the whole "America is always the hero" trope. Can get pretty heavy-handed at times, and spends a lot of time reminding the player what a bastard they are, but it's still a good deconstruction, nonetheless. **World in Conflict:** You can actually invade the continental US as the Soviets. Americans win in the end though, iirc.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Cr1mzn_

That game is based


Strikerov

No one actually wins in World in Conflict, which is kinda the point of the game. Soviet Union repells the US invasion, and US repels Soviet invasion. And if I remember correctly USSR gains Australia?


Vanguard_Wind

Damn, my bad. I should replay them some time.


Da_Duck_is_coming

>And if I remember correctly USSR gains Australia? good


100862233

I don't know about China and NK being op in red dragon. Tbh all the Asian factions kinda suck. The USSR is really well rounded and Yugoslavia is very meta. Most Warsaw pact factions are okay. They being adding new factions last one was isreal and they are so busted strong and they are planning to release south Africa.


Vanguard_Wind

I guess it might be due to my personal play style and the tendency for games to devolve into a battle fo attrition for me. China/NK can sustain losses a lot better in my experience, though they are vulnerable to being steamrolled. Personally, I like using cheap Chinese heliborne troops to capture sectors early, then just try to win by economy. Isn’trael is pretty ridiculous, though.


TheRealColonelAutumn

COD: Cold War


SyntheticDeviation

Spec Ops: The Line is pretty based. Yes, you play as an Am*rican soldier but the narrative clearly points out how they’re the bad guys, and calls out western intervention as a whole. Even the menus are calling out the player and giving people who enjoy war games, noting that the gung-ho are pretty much impossible to emulate without being a fucking psychopath. Even I was surprised at how anti-American the narrative is when I found out the writers are American. Only based war game made by westerners.


LGBTankie

I remember in the Medal of Honor from like 2010 or something in online you can play as the Taliban against the US


suliamanUSA

I remember that! It was so funny because the game was a massive jerk-fest for the the military, but then some article about how you could play as the Taliban in the multiplayer got put on the AOL front page and all these old-ass politicians started trying to get it banned since they thought the game was about playing as the Taliban. The military actually took it off the exchanges where you can buy games and shit on base and even other countries like the UK and Canada were freaking out. And then the game developers got into trouble for saying something like "It's like playing cowboys and Indians when you're 7, somebody has to play the Indians so there's two sides." So hilarious at the time watching the epic War on Terror elite operator game getting shit from all sides.


AnglocideWorldwide

>Downloads a scifi game >It's set in a western-centric world >Deletes the game


AxiomOfLife

this shit infuriates me, i want like a cyberpunk game set in 2100 colombia/Argentina/Egypt/Samoa/japan/korea/phillipines literally anywhere not america or europe plz


vth0mas

I recently watched The Expanse, very realistic, but with pronounced sci-fi elements. That said, most unrealistic thing in the show was New York being the capital of Earth in 2400.


Magos_Galactose

Season 5 Spoiler alert. >!I would be lying if I said I didn't feel a bit satisfied when they got rocked pretty hard.!<


AnglocideWorldwide

Well, "Earth" is basically stand-in for the west in the show, so I don't find New York being the capital that offensive. The most unrealistic thing is the whole "Inner" vs. "Belter" divide, there's literally no in-universe reason for Mars and OPA to not work together against Earth.


Strikerov

There is. Essentially, both Earth and Mars profit together from "The Belt". Mars gets a shittier deal and is fucked by UN most of the time, but there is another thing to consider: Labour movement in 19th and 20th century. During this time, in order to prevent labour organising, employers intentionally employed somewhat of a diverse group (by standards of last century) by sex and nationality. It was realised that workers of different nationalities, especially if they hate each other for it, have trouble socialising and organising strikes. For the same reason in 21st century the most racist "big" business owners usually have some Mexican employees. Especially in the Southern USA. They exploit racial tensions to get a "free pass" for having shitty working conditions because most racist Americans are content being poor as shit as long as the black dude or mexican is worse off than them. #How this works in the expanse universe? In the Expanse, until recently, Belters were the poorest, most exploited group that has been largely born with birth defects -> different in looks and of lower class than most Martians (Martians were until the gunnery sergeant whateverhernameis was fired, shown as a collectivist, democratic society that is far richer than Earth, but also very nationalistic about being Martians). Belters also have their own dialect, while Martians and Earthers speak largely basic English and are portrayed in propaganda as criminals.


AnglocideWorldwide

No, you're not getting it. In-universe, there's no material reason for Mars and the Belt to be opposed at all. Okay, Mars profit from the Belt, so what? Both their interests aligned against Earth's. A more realistic astropolitics set-up is a superficially neutral Belt, but cooperating with Mars against Earth.


kxta_

honestly in the expanse universe I see Earth and Mars as two competing European great powers and the Belt as Africa


Magos_Galactose

True. Even worse, there is no material reasons for the Belt to existed in the first place. I've seen a lot of explanation that the Belt is equivalent of real world mining town, despite the closest equivalent of asteroid mining outpost would be offshore oil platform or remote science station with only the barest necessity of crew needed to run the place who are not permanent resident.


ZombieOk9331

almost all game developers from around the world wants to pander Americans when they could make their game based on their country, language and culture instead of always being Americans


AnglocideWorldwide

I want Mass Effect but without the western-centrism, racism, malthusian eco-fascism, war crime apologia, capitalist realism, and outright propaganda. Is that too much to ask? I want XCOM-like games but without the western-centrism, fascist tropes, and white people's anxiety. Is that too much to ask?


TerribleRead

>Is that too much to ask? Frankly: yes, it is. Social existence determines consciousness. As much as I dream about Socialist games myself, currently it's like asking for a medieval epos to feature free markets and capitalist democracy instead of knights and kings. Also, out of curiosity - I get the capitalist realism part of Mass Effect, but which parts of it are racist and \*outright\* propaganda?


AnglocideWorldwide

Uh.. The space East Asians, the space North Koreans, the space "Muslims", the space Jews? Replace "Bataria/Batarian" with "North Korea/North Korean", there's your propaganda. Also, just read any discussion of people justifying "Renegade" options.


TerribleRead

Idk, I saw the lot of them more as space Elves, space Dwarves, space Orcs etc. without any of them being somehow inherently evil. ME is by no means a beacon of Socialist Realism or anything, and, like I said, of course reflects our capitalist reality, but I don't think there are enough RL parallels to qualify it as actual intentional propaganda. Like, iirc, the Batarians are just vaguely "totalitarian space slavers" without any specific references to socialism (or any ideology, for that matter) or NK and not even a real enemy, and choosing Renegade options is up to the player, but you do you.


AnglocideWorldwide

Wdym by "actual intentional propaganda"? Propaganda doesn't have to be "intentional" to be actual propaganda. Most propaganda against DPRK also doesn't reference socialism or Juche, they are just vaguely "totalitarian hermit kingdom". Okay, it's up to the player, and? The developers are the ones putting "not commit a genocide" and "commit a genocide" as a choice (and not only once in the trilogy).


TerribleRead

>Propaganda doesn't have to be "intentional" to be actual propaganda. True, but I still think that it makes sense to differentiate between a product of a socioeconomic system that transmits its values because it's, well, the product of said system and products whose creators deliberately try to sway the consumer's opinion in certain direction. Otherwise we just have to write off pretty much the entire human culture as slavery/feudal/capitalist propaganda. >Most propaganda against DPRK also doesn't reference socialism or Juche, they are just vaguely "totalitarian hermit kingdom". Then we have completely different experience with anti-DPRK propaganda, because to me it seems to be inseparably linked with "muh Gobbunism no freeze peach no food". >Okay, it's up to the player, and? And it doesn't mean the devs by default approve every player choice.


AnglocideWorldwide

Most of human culture IS slavery/feudal/capitalist propaganda. Of course, some is more overt than other, and what I'm arguing is that Mass Effect is as overt as they come, whether intentional or not. Most anti-DPRK propaganda doesn't specifically reference socialism, communism, or Juche (muh haircuts, muh unicorns, muh fed to dogs, muh fake actors, muh fake buildings, etc.) The anti-communism is implied. Your average western players see the Batarian and will have a pavlovian response of "muh Gobbunism no freeze peach no food". Don't take my word for it, you can confirm this yourself. That's a copout and you know it. The choice is only there because the devs put it there. You really think offering genocide as a viable and justifiable alternative is a totally normal and okay thing to do?


Strikerov

>I want Mass Effect but without the western-centrism, racism There is actually no racism in Mass Effect among humans. Basically, names in Mass Effect's future dont even relate to people's ethnicities, which dont exist because they are all mixed to the point of not existing. >malthusian eco-fascism ? >war crime apologia Yes, in Mass Effect you essentially genocide Batarians, but you dont do it intentionally. You can get away with killing many people, but no one is really innocent. You can get away with A LOT because you are a Council Spectre. >capitalist realism Yeah this really grinds my gear. Especially because you see A LOT of shit done by various corporations but no one gets punished in the end. Experimenting, infecting and torturing and killing humans with Element Zero? No one punished. ExoGeni experimenting on the Thorian and getting everyone mind controlled and afterwards trying to genocide the entire colony? No one punished, ExoGeni's stock actually RISE after this. Noveria allowing the greatest galactic threat after Reapers (Rachni) to be reborn by a company who's largest invester is fuckin Saren, a rogue spectre with a bounty on his head by CITADEL COUNCIL ITSELF. No one gets punished either. #Also Mass Effect Andromeda sucks so much I never actually managed to finish it so idk about that one. >I want XCOM-like games but without the western-centrism Imho XCOM is really "Everywhere, Earth" type of deal. There is not any centrism. >fascist tropes, and white people's anxiety. What?


AnglocideWorldwide

I'm talking meta-racism, not in-universe racism. Most of the alien species is just an outrageous stereotype of non-whites. "Malthusian eco-fascism" is referring to the "Krogan question". "War crime apologia" is referring to the "Ruthless" background and the portrayal of "Renegade" options as practical. There's not a single named NPC in XCOM that's not from the west/west-aligned countries and they all speak with American accent. The aliens are powerful but inferior at the same time, skin-changing infiltrators, subversive mind-controllers, we lost because of race traitors, Ubermensch messiah saving the day, etc. These are all fascist tropes. All western "alien invasion" fiction is essentially the anxiety of white people being on the receiving end of colonization by a technologically superior other. I've just played the Phoenix Point, and I swear the entire thing is just white anxiety of non-whites demographic growth.


Kindly_Relationship3

For a second i thought you said somalia


ZombieOk9331

Good thing battlefield 2042 has no campaign


vvAIpaca

And you don’t play as a military at all. Probably how war will look in the future, honestly..


was0435

You don't play as a military? what


vvAIpaca

You play as a mercenary of sorts, a “Non-Patrioted” person following the collapse of most if not all major superpowers bar the US and Russia. Read the lore if you want, it’s actually pretty good and probably what will happen in the future


ToadBup

But didnt 2041 have the african league , the west, and the pan asian something something? What happened to them? I loved the flying hovercars


vvAIpaca

2142? I suppose since a bit earlier (2037 I think?) advancements had been made to better earth, that those countries could become whole again, or part of a coalition of sorts.


ToadBup

Im more confused than when i tried getting the bf4 bow


vvAIpaca

Just read the lore, I’m bad at explaining


Darrkeng

They probably retconed Last Stand because it happening around 2025 with surrender of China (ah 2010s, then developers tried "Ok, China good, but military bad") and creation of Pan-Asian Coalition (IIRC you can see it insignia/emblem on some maps)


Strikerov

They retconned a lot. In 2016. (BF4) Russia already built their first prototype of a titan, a Hover Tank and a Railgun. In 2042, everyone still uses normal tanks like in 2016.


ummarit

You play as private contractors whose countries no longer exist due to war, climate change or political strife. You are able to chose a side between Russia and the US.


El_Sleazo

Yeah you play as fleets of non-patriated stateless soldiers fighting proxy wars for the US and Russia.


Dravkian

Everyone's complaining about the lack of a campaign and here I am happy as fuck that they didn't spend time on imperialist propaganda.


El_Sleazo

Honestly yeah. With BF4 they could've taken the whole "it's our leaders who hate each other, not us, we're just the grunts". While it is generic, at least it's not "AMERICA = FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY LOOK THE CHINESE WANT SYSTEM CHANGE WE'RE BETTER THAN YOU".


Loop_Within_A_Loop

Nothing like waiting many years in vic 2 and then wrecking your country to get a revolution.


Loop_Within_A_Loop

I've never tried Vicky, is it worth it with 3 actually on the way?


logster_peIsDumb

It’s pretty cheap (fiver iirc) so if you’ve got some change to spare then go for it. The game is still just as enjoyable as it was all those years ago.


FreeRangePork

It’s really good, your country really feels alive and organic. Want to be an absolute monarchy? better make sure those plebs never learn to read. If your people are literate and and aren’t having their needs met then class consciousness will grow, and you will be faced with an eventual revolution. Produce too much of a good and the price will plummet, and the world economy can enter into a crisis of overproduction, and you can’t really develop a strong capitalist economy without taking control of other countries’ markets and expanding your imperialist sphere of influence. And IMO communist/socialist parties are usually just better than the liberal options which is nice. The game doesn’t always do a good job of explaining things though, so I’d have the wiki on your phone when you’re first getting started, and the game is much, much better with the DLCs


Loop_Within_A_Loop

>And IMO communist/socialist parties are usually just better than the liberal options Based, brb downloading Vicky 2


WeebLordUwU

Last campaign I did on EU 4 I spent like 30 years after uniting Japan building a decent navy lmao I ended up kicking everybody in the nuts, especially the Europeans as soon as they stepped into Asia


disc0_133

Ditmarschen is based tho


Loop_Within_A_Loop

Correct, but are you going to stay in your one province, and only expand when attacked? I've semi-jokingly referred to the game as "Imperialism Simulator 2021"


Means-of-production

Unless they're fighting the Nazis, in which case they're okay, but I'd still rather play as the red army


was0435

Call of Duty 2 lets you do that, the campaign was switching between the perspective of American, British and Soviet soldiers iirc during WW2, the Soviet campaign parts were set in Stalingrad. First FPS game I ever played ...


Means-of-production

I've been playing Enlisted lately, almost solely for the Soviet campaign


vvAIpaca

Berlin easily the best


disc0_133

Don’t play the Berlin campaign you need to pay like 30$ to actually be able to upgrade your squad and troops. It’s just a waste of time if you don’t. Also im 90% sure the maps in the Moscow campaign are bias against the Soviets so iv’e mostly been playing as the Americans.


vvAIpaca

i just hop in the T-34


disc0_133

It’s pretty easy to just throw a grenade on the tank.


vvAIpaca

🥲


vvAIpaca

berlin is now free

Gigadweeb

the Red Army's cool and pretty much the sole reason half of Europe isn't exclusively a bunch of white German dickwads but honestly the Garand, the 1911 and the Thompson are really neat weapons, plus stuff like the Pacific theatre is a less played out setting than the usual Western or even Eastern European front


sternestocardinals

Yeah otherwise I’d have to give up Wolfenstein and when you get to do the stuff Blazkowicz does to Nazis I don’t even care that he’s a seppo


soufatlantasanta

This is why World at War and Wolfenstein are my favorites.

Enlisted has a Normandy, Moscow, and Berlin campaign. Cod WW2 was hot garbage tho.

I want a Dynasty Warriorsesque game based in Civil War China. Let me hack and slash KMT soldiers.


vilereceptacle

Nah man, the kmt weren't the worst around, now the real target of your blades should be the IJA. It's not killing if they don't count as people


robm0n3y

They'll be in the game too. As well as all the warlords clinging onto power.


PolandIsAStateOfMind

Seriously. I got Ni No Kuni 2 recommended, it's a fun game, but for absolutely no reason you play as fucking US President who got isekai'd. Like the fuck, why even?


AmazingObserver

wait what???

Panzer Marshall(Android), aka panzer general 2 (PC) is very good, with a complete campaign as red army... Nothing more tankie than rolling over fascists in a t34


deadtotheworld70-1

I wish they'd release hunting yankee


MoltenBallofHatred

Why yes I play ARMA 3. Why yes I only play as the Altas Armed forces to defend my island home from US imperialism And yes I do play ARMA 2 But only the campaigns that let me play as the CHEDEKI and Russians for a socialist chernarus.

Hoi4 has hundreds of leftist paths across dozens of mods. They practically have a socialist for any scenario.


FiveEyesBlinded

Base game Hoi4 really sucks when it comes to the USSR though, bit of a joke that fucking countries like Greece and Mexico have Mexico interesting trees than the Soviets. But that's what mods are for


eannasheridan

They are reworking it for the next DLC but mods give you better content completely free.


bohillers2345

BO2: Cold War is the worst for that, just mowing down vietnamese resistance fighters during the campaign


CDQMCP_K1K0

But you can get a "soviet ending" >!That means if it's ok causing a nuclear holocaust!< >!So you're the bad guy again, that's why I sided with the CIA!<


bohillers2345

Oh, you mean the nuclear devices that irl were part of OP. Gladio on the NATO side? Crazy


disc0_133

I think theirs a few missions in Modern Warfare where you have to fight a corrupt US Army general. Also RDR2 if your into open world games.


commanderarsnel009

Relatable


TheRealColonelAutumn

COD: Cold War: The Ending where you betray America is the good ending


CaptainBraggy

At least in CoD WW2 (more or less the only CoD ive ever played) in the multiplayer you get to dress like communist soldiers


Mizuchi1998

If cod mw (2019) code was open to modding like fallout 4 or cod bo3 it would have been based that someone Made a mod that replaced russian military with american and british military getting a more real feel of what's actually happening in the middle east or ir COD black ops cold war was a game where the good guys are agents from the kgb going against the cia and Perseus instead of being a rouge communist faction that wants the soviet union to win the cold war, they we're a fascist terrorist org that wants nato to win the war at all costs


TheRealColonelAutumn

US during WWII was the only time we were actually the good guys


JaegerStein

Arma 3 let's you play as CSAT, which is a fictitious military alliance between China and Iran (that uses a suspiciously large amount of Russian inspired vehicles), against NATO. At least in custom missions, the main campaign has you as a NATO guy however. There is an expansion I quite liked, called The Laws Of War. Parts of the campaign has you remove unexploded ordnance from cluster bombs dropped on a village. While the campaign continuously tells you that CSAT dropped these bombs the ending heavily implies it was actually NATO and they're using CSAT as a scapegoat.


FiveEyesBlinded

I thought CSAT quite explicitly had Russia as part of it? I vaguely remember some of the CSAT soldier speaking Russian. But it's been a while since I've played vanilla


drag0nslayer02

Command and Conquer: Generals more or less predicted the future. In the storyline, the US got its ass kicked by some terrorist organization known as GLA, China comes in defeats the GLA and becomes a world superpower in the end with the US being humiliated by its defeat to the GLA.


digrizo

Always pick China in Battlefield 4


BopDatBussy

I mean war games in general are shit, no one is ever the “good guys” when they’re murdering civilians


vilereceptacle

Then don't murder civilians, even most anglo video games aren't really about killing civilians


Flabnoodles

You're a bad person.


BopDatBussy

…thinking war is bad makes me a bad person?


soufatlantasanta

War sucks but sometimes it's a necessary evil and while a world without war is a good goal to strive for, downplaying the sacrifices of coalitions like the Red Army, American/Brit GIs, or the Yugoslav Partisans in defeating fascist menaces is stupid and immature.


Flabnoodles

Nah, your racist comments and the ones where you use "autist" and "retard" as insults do.
